Red­lands May­or Pete Aguilar (D) of­fi­cially beat former con­gres­sion­al aide Lesli Gooch (R) after of­fi­cials closed the vote count on Fri­day. Aguilar beat Gooch by 209 votes to move on the the gen­er­al elec­tion against Navy vet­er­an Paul Chabot (R), whom Aguilar will be favored to beat.

Demo­crats nearly had a re­peat of the 2012 dis­aster in which two Re­pub­lic­ans ad­vanced through the top-two primary des­pite Demo­crats’ re­gis­tra­tion ad­vant­age in the dis­trict, be­cause the Demo­crat­ic vote was split among a crowded field of Demo­crat­ic can­did­ates. Aguilar beat three oth­er Demo­crats in the race. (The Hill)
